A Resounding Success!

The Shovel the Hovel Project receives a boost of funding that made us all sing at Snakehall Farm this summer. The Prospects Trust received over £900 from ReSound after their beautiful summer concert. We spoke with our Trustee Jane Kershaw about her involvement with ReSound:

“I am very proud to be a member of ReSound, a 36 voice choir that performs regularly around Cambridge, singing an eclectic contemporary and traditional mix of a cappella songs from different cultures, rich in harmony and rhythm.

We have been singing together since 2010, when the choir was created by our musical Director, Rowena Whitehead.  Rowena has been called “a musical activist”, a neat phrase that sums up a thread weaving through all she does. She is a performer, a composer, a teacher, a singing leader, a facilitator who inspires everyone she works with.

ReSound filling with beautiful voices at St Cyriacs in June 2019

She believes that singing runs deep within us all and reaches parts that nothing else touches. For Rowena singing is more than a pleasure, it’s an essential expression of life that helps individuals and communities thrive.

This is one of the things that makes Tuesday evening rehearsals so special:  we only do music that touches the heart and everyone knows each other pretty well after singing together for such a long time.

We usually sing to raise money for charitable causes, so everyone in the choir was delighted to sing for Prospects and get to know a bit about it as an organisation – and a total of £950 from the concert at St Cyriac’s was an added bonus.”

Rhubarb Poo Pudding (aka Sticky Rhubarb Pudding)

Maz’s Rhubarb Poo Pudding

Maz, our Development Manager, loves a new recipe and this is her current seasonal fave fresh for the rhubarb season. Her daughter is a very honest food critic in the making and renamed the sticky rhubarb pudding as “Rhubarb Poo”. It has now stuck (its that sticky) and has become a Sunday feast finisher. Here’s our Tilly’s Tastes Recipe of the Season. Download the recipie card below.

Snakehall Runners Success

Huge congratulations to Anna from the Garden Team and Linda from the Farm Team, on completing the Cambridge Half Marathon on the 3rd March. They braved the wet weather and hit the streets of Cambridge to raise money for The Prospects Trust’s £30K for 30 Years campaign. Thanks to their efforts we raised over £1200.00.

I caught up with Anna to ask how it felt to run the 13 mile race and she said ” it was an amazing experience. What made it for me was the encouragement from the crowd and the messages of support”

Times: Anna – 1 hr 55 and Linda = 2hrs 33
Well done to our Snakehall runners you did brilliantly.
